Connection with society
In accordance with our management philosophy, we strive to contribute to the sustainable development of society by working toward the realization of a spiritually rich society.
We accept student internships not as a recruitment activity, but as part of our contribution to the local community. We support the students to improve their abilities and attitudes necessary as members of society and professionals through work experience.

We actively support innovation by dispatching our engineers to give technical lectures at technical colleges as part of a human resource development project sponsored by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, and to give technical lectures at committee meetings sponsored by incorporated bodies.

-Acceptance of factory tours
We actively accept factory tours of local elementary school students and students on school excursions. Learning about the existence of various professions and actually observing manufacturing in a factory, which cannot be learned in school life, is a part of the career education for children.
-Conducting blood donation activities
We provide a place for blood donation on the plant premises, and our employees actively participate in blood donation activities. We hope that blood donation will contribute to the health of as many people as possible, and we will continue to cooperate with the Japanese Red Cross Society.
Creating Comfortable Working Environment

-Company-wide award system
The TOKYO Diamond Cup is held every year to honor and reward organizations and individuals who have made outstanding achievements in the categories of sales merit, profit improvement, development technology, and business innovation.
-Qualification support system
In order to encourage employees to improve their skills and growth, and to promote self-development, we provide a congratulatory payment when employees pass the specific qualifications.
Human Resource Development
Through the introduction of our personnel system and educational programs such as various training programs, we are striving to improve our organizational strength to develop independent human resources who can think and act on their own and achieve high results.
We have introduced a role-based grading system that sets grades according to each employee's position and size of his/her "role" required for the job. The system is based on the premise of "equal pay for equal roles" and allows employees to earn wages commensurate with the results of each role, regardless of age or career, with a high degree of difficulty and expectation.
The role-based grading system will enable employees to be more independent in thinking about what they need to do to fulfill their roles and responsibilities, as well as to be able to respond flexibly to organizational changes through role definitions without being bound by fixed duties.
Examples of training
-New employee training
This training is held in April every year to improve the basic skills of new employees who are learning the basics of manufacturing.
-Training for young employees and mid-career employees
The program is designed to develop role awareness and basic skills in order to raise the speed of growth over three years: role awareness in the first year, critical thinking skills in the second year, and interpersonal skills in the third year.
-Global human resources development training
With the aim of developing human resources who can respond to the rapidly accelerating globalization, the employees will acquire a flexible mindset unconstrained by rules or procedures, language skills, communication skills, cross-cultural competence, initiative, proactivity, leadership, and expertise in their area of responsibility.
-Action learning training
We provide project-based training where participants learn to set up the company's issues, formulate solutions, implement them, and learn the methods and techniques for the implementation at the same time, with the assumption that they will actually implement them.
-Personnel evaluation training
Training is provided to managers and supervisors to improve the level of personnel evaluation and to ensure appropriate evaluation interviews.
